Beatrice, Neb. (March 2, 2015) — Exmark today announced the upcoming launch of its “Take Back Your Weekends” video contest. Set to begin April 1, 2015, the contest will run through June 30, 2015.
Exmark Director of Marketing, Daryn Walters, said the contest gives entrants the opportunity to show what they would do with the extra free time a more productive mower would give them.
“Exmark is the brand landscape professionals purchase two-to-one over the next best selling brand. The increased productivity Exmark mowers deliver is a professional’s competitive advantage. For a home or acreage owner, Exmark productivity allows them to spend less time on lawn maintenance and spend more time enjoying the benefits of a beautifully maintained property.”
Entrants are required to submit a video depicting how lawn mowers can save time along with a story on what they might do with the extra time. Videos must be original and not previously-published work, and will be judged on three weighted criteria: Creativity (50 percent); Authenticity of the person/story presented (30 percent); and, Demonstration of lawn mower’s time saving ability to “take back your weekends” (20 percent).
One lucky winner will take home the grand prize – a top-of-the-line Exmark Lazer Z X-Series commercial zero-turn riding mower valued at more than $12,000. First prize is a Delaware River fishing trip with professional tournament fisherman, Mike Iaconelli.
